    Had some work done last year on my property, extended the road to the back of the pond and had a secondary culvert installed. Well last year, during the winter the culvert washed out in a big flood and had to have it re-installed this year. This time I added a pre-formed concrete headwall, filled in all the wash out areas, dredged the pond along the shoreline and in the culvert area and built up the pond berm in some low areas. I also ended up with a whole heck of a lot of spare clay to do repairs with. He also re-topped the road over the culvert.

    Just some general pics when nothing is going on.

    It's more of recreational/camping property, but in this day and age, it just might have to be a bug out property at some point. If you lived in Fergusen, MO it might pay off to have a spot to spend a week at to avoid the riots. Never know what can happen these days, better to be prepared. At the very least I have a food and water source. Tons of largemouth, some smallmouth, crappie, and some varieties of veggie carps.

    This little guy was about the length of my sons torso (9 years old), I didn't have a scale but that was a big fish.

    How do you eat bass?

    Never heard of anyone actually eating them, and that they are a sport fish.
    Assuming that is why "catch and release" is so popular? :confused:

    Yeah, bass are good eaten. Beer batter or cornmeal/panko are all good, it is very mild.

    Crappie, little salt, pepper, lemon, and cilantro. Wrap in foil and throw on hot grill or in hot oven for about 10 to 15 minutes. Unwrap and gorge.

    I hear that Yellow Perch is really good. Lake Cascade has held the state record for the largest several times now!

    Lotsa pics HERE of fishing around the area! :thumbsup:

    They are actually better than trout, to my taste, like someone said, it's mild, not too fishy.

    Catch and release is popular because many folk are trophy fishermen, they want the little ones to grow bigger.

    Also, many fishermen aren't into killing and eating their own food, they are kinda like the wusses of "outdoorsmen". Ride around in a high speed low drag machine with a cooler for their beer, stay in the hotel at night, never need to get dirty, cold, build a fire or make shelter....you get the idea!:p

    Looks like a prime location for duck hunting as well.

    It is, just to the north is a large tract of State Wildlife Preserve with another large body of water and Federal land to the east.
